Chili Con Queso with Taco Meat

Simple recipe that the kids love. (The kids are 20 years old now, but they still love it.)   Great for the Superbowl or any game day or a Mexican fiesta.  This recipe is easy to double or triple.
  • 1 lb. ground meat
  • 1 pack of Taco Seasoning or ¼ C.
  • ½ C. water
  • 1 lb. Velveeta cheese, cubed
  • 1 can of Mexican Rotel tomatoes with green chilies
  1. In a skillet on medium heat, brown the ground meat then drain
  2. Add the browned ground meat back to the skillet with the taco seasoning and ½ C. of water
  3. Allow the taco meat to simmer for 15 minutes on low heat until the sauce is fully incorporated into the meat
  4. While the meat is simmering, add the cheese and the Rotel to a microwave safe dish and heat for 5 minutes, stirring every minute
  5. When the cheese is all melted, add the meat to the mixture
  6. Stir well and serve in a small crock pot
Tips and Tricks:
  • I serve this with Tostitos or Fritos Scoops.
